Matthew Fox was arrested for a DUI in Oregon, less than a year after Ohio assault

Last year, I discovered something new: Matthew Fox is a d-bag. I had been a Lost fan, and while I found Fox/Jack Shepherd to be severely annoying, I never really considered the possibility that he was a massive tool in real life. SURPRISE! He is. Last year, he got wasted and tried to board a party bus in Cleveland – and when the bus driver tried to stop him, Fox punched the driver in her stomach, boobs and vadge. I’m still not sure what’s happening with that case legally, although I think Fox filed a counter-suit against the woman he assaulted. I guess she walked into his drunken fist. Repeatedly. Anyway, here’s more evidence that Matthew is a d-bag with a drinking problem: he just got a DUI.

“Lost” star Matthew Fox was busted for DUI Friday in Oregon … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Matthew was arrested at 3:23AM on suspicion of driving under the influence. We’re told there was a passenger in the car.

Matthew was taken into custody and released later that day.

Details surrounding the arrest are unclear — but sources tell us, it was alcohol-related. We’re told Matthew was en route to a fast food restaurant for some late night eats at the time of his arrest.

Matthew lives in Bend, Oregon with his family. Calls to Matthew’s reps were not returned.

Some people claim that I treat men with substance abuse issues differently than women. Personally, I don’t see it. I’m disgusted that men AND women are still drinking and driving. Not to mention drinking-and-assaulting. What’s the difference between Matthew Fox and Lindsay Lohan, or Amanda Bynes? Matthew is WAY too old to pulling this crap. If anything, I have less built-in sympathy for him because of his age (45) and his previous issues (punching a bus driver in the vagina).

Anyway… I wouldn’t be surprised if Fox’s reaction to this incident would be to finally go into rehab and deal with some of his issues. Or maybe he’ll take the Lohan-Bynes route and just keep on partying, driving and assaulting.

    He’s clearly got serous drinking problem

  2. lucy2 says:

    He’s a mess – needs some serious rehab, and needs to get his life together.

  3. Madison says:

    What is wrong with these people drinking and driving, it’s never ok at any age but unfortunately idiots like Matthew won’t get it until they kill an innocent person because they were DUI.

  4. flan says:

    His character was very annoying in Lost. The designated hero (and therefore always right) thing because white and male has gotten very tiring. It was the main reason I quite watching after a season.

    After that weird assault, it turned out he was a douche in real life. He should at least do community service for this.

  5. Minnie says:

    Who is this guy again? He is nothing but a drunk loser who hits women and doesn’t know how to act. Useless moron.

  6. D1 says:

    We have to call a cab, Kate.


  7. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    Can someone tell me what actually has to happen before the US authorities snatch your driving license for DUI? Seems like none of these celebs ever got punished. It’s pathetic!

  8. Beyonce's Bump says:

    I never got his appeal, I agree with above commenter about his character in lost. Driving under influence is so douchey.

  9. sheri says:

    Team Sawyer!!!!

  10. Tiffany says:

    Bend is not that large of a city. I think that his children are teens. What are family dinners like? When the kids go to school or when his wife has to go shopping? Where you thinking about them when you were getting drunk and acting like a massive tool Charlie (Party of Five for life).

    • Sugar says:

      hi Tiffany I’m actually from Bend & yup it’s a small enough town where the behavior of Mr. Fox didn’t fly under the radar this time-it’s all over the radio this AM & I forget that he even lives here until his behavior (usually alcohol involved) reminds me that he does. I know a lot of people who have no problem calling a cab around here & from his appearance in the pix he doesn’t look any more famous than I do so he needs to get over himself.

      • Tiffany says:

        Hi Sugar. This time!! There’s more, do tell.I feel that hsi family and the residents should not be embarassed by this clown. I looked up the city website and its looks beautiful up there from what I see. I am planning my vacation and I might have to add this one to my list…so some good could come out of this.

      • Sugar says:

        Tiffany u so need to make a stop thru here! there is so much to enjoy here year round but we Bendites love our summertime. we do have our closet celebs that live up here im still just dying to run into Sam Elliot *sigh*

    God I miss Sawyer

  12. Jen34 says:

    I have zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Hire a cab next time, jack ass. You certainly can afford it.

  13. Stubbylove says:

    No suprise here – I felt his doucheness back when he was on Party of Five – couldn’t watch Lost b’cuz he’s always annoyed the shit out of me.

  14. bea says:

    The party-ing is taking it’s toll – he’s not so cute any more.

    I believe the d-bag comments, his t-shirts and a blazer look points heavily in that direction.

    Hopefully he’ll get help or a driver!

  15. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    The dude needs to crawl under a rock for a while until he can sort his sh-t out.

  16. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Well, what the hell happened to him? He was during lost, like almost never aged between Party of Five and then.

    I had no idea he was into all that stuff. It just goes to show you that you never know.

  17. danielle says:

    I still can’t get over the whole punching a woman in the vagina thing. If someone punches a guy in the balls, it’s to cause more pain and get them down faster. Punching a woman there…it just speaks to an almost sexual hatred that is weird and squicks me out.

  18. Amanda G says:

    I got so tired of Jack’s daddy issues on Lost! What happened to his looks? I hope he gets the help he needs.

  19. Oksana says:

    Why these people with all the money in the world just won’t get a cab or hire a driver?? Why to be stupid enough to drink and drive and jeopardize there own lives and lives of other people on a road?

  20. holly hobby says:

    Wow what happened to him? It’s like he’s in a free fall! You never hear a peep about him when he was on Party of Five and Lost and now all this bad press!

    What’s wrong with you Dr. Shepard?

  21. Tiffany says:

    @ Sugar. Sam Elliott lives there. That voice melts butter.

  22. Misspdx says:

    Anyone remember the stripper drama he got into in Bend as well? Had a dancer gf on the side that sold him out to te enquirer? I live in Portland and hear about his antics at the strip club Stars in Bend. It’s no secret here he’s an alchie and a ladies man

    I actually thought he was great on Lost. Jack was annoying, but I think he was supposed to be. He was supposed to be troubled and a bit of a dick. In the very last episode, remembers, he acknowledges that he’s been wrong all along and that John Locke (swoon!) was the real hero who knew what was going on.

    That said, M.Fox sucks.

  25. I take pleasure in, lead to I found just what I was having a look for. You have ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye
